Every player is prone to a letdown, and that was the case for Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts during Week 10. Fresh off a comeback victory over the Houston Texans in Week 9, Luck coughed up the ball and the Colts' defense collapsed as Indianapolis lost 38-8 to the St. Louis Rams.

This is a good opportunity to assess Luck's fantasy trade value.

Luck was 29-of-47 for 353 yards, one touchdown, three interceptions, a fumble that was recovered for a touchdown and a two-point conversion. He attempted to salvage a very poor performance with a late score, but it wasn't enough.

More specifically, it was an out-of-character performance by the second-year quarterback.

As strange as it was to see, this game shouldn't be passed over as meaningless.

Luck has now played two games without wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who is out for the season with a torn ACL. He threw for 271 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions during Week 9, but also completed 45.0 percent of his passes.   

One week later, Luck's numbers were strong, but the turnovers piled up and the inexperience of his receiving corps was on full display.

There's an inevitable risk in starting Luck without Wayne, but that doesn't mean you should trade him. He's still going to command a high asking price, but Luck is a second-half maestro and his touchdown numbers will be valuable moving forward. In addition, you likely won't get fair value right now considering his poor performance in Week 10.

Keep in mind, this is a Colts team that is without a consistent rushing attack. Hold onto Luck and start him, as he won't routinely turn the ball over like he did against St. Louis.
